The demand for advanced cardiovascular devices is spreading throughout the developed world. And few devices are as advanced as those coming out of Burpee Materials Technology. Founded in 1998, Burpee Materials develops and manufactures metallic cardiovascular stents, stent delivery catheters and other devices noted for their precision. The company has adopted a do-it-yourself approach, meaning that much of its process, design and testing capabilities are based on homegrown engineering solutions. Plans call for the company to expand into emerging markets for neurovascular and orthopedic implants.
